This is my best build to date. Still have a lot to work on and improve in my building. Color is Model Master Citrus Yellow Metallic, a $2.22 can of clearance paint from Hobby Lobby that my wife found and bought. I did BMF on the hood and around all the windows, that's a first for me. Also added spark plug wires, PE wire looms, a coil, battery wires and PE terminals, fuel line going from pump to carb, PVC line from breather to intake and did BMF on the air cleaner lid. Also did PE keys in the ignition with a Ford key chain, PE seat belts, window cranks and embossing powder for the carpet. Had trouble getting the 2 pc hood decal to sit flat. This build started off as a white paint job but had a lot of junk in the paint and after sanding i just didn't have enough paint left to do a second good coat. Here's some crappy pictures. Ill take better ones tonight.

Thank you! I spent about 3 weeks on and off building it. About a week for the engine, and a week and a half on the body.

Thanks guys! Will be buying this one again to build it as the 1970 Mach 1. Plan on doing fuel and brake lines and adding Drum brakes on the next one.

That's a really good looking model! I like the color, and the overall look of the car is perfect; good job on the decals, too. I like it a lot!
